Nashville, TN – With Tax Day only a month away, the Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance’s (TDCI) Division of Consumer Affairs wants the public to know they have a voice at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
“For many, filing income taxes is a task that can be time-consuming and stressful,” TDCI Deputy Commissioner Bill Giannini said. “Our Consumer Affairs team and our partners with the IRS Taxpayer Advocate Service remind Tennesseans that tax help is just a phone call away.”The Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) is an independent organization within IRS that helps taxpayers and protects taxpayer rights. TAS can help if you need assistance resolving an IRS problem, if your problem is causing financial difficulty, or if you believe an IRS system or procedure isn’t working as it should.
The service is free.
